Penny for Your Thoughts

Literally! As postage is now going to increase one cent on May 12th. On Sunday night I watched this segment on 60 minutes about the controversy of keeping the penny or getting rid of it --- completely! I don't remember any mention about U.S. postage, and I can't imagine all U.S. postage rounding up to the nearest 5 cent.

Already people have cut back on sending out letters and cards, which breaks my heart as to me nothing can replace a handwritten note. Sometimes I think the act of writing letters will soon be a rarity; I'm happy to be amongst the rare.
